is former new hampshire governor john sununu. i want to warn you a couple things, there's a little satellite delay. and i want to warn viewers so we don't step on each other too much. but governor, let me start with debate expectations. do you agree with chris christie it's silly, the games the campaigns are playing? >> i don't want to characterize it the way governor christie did. i'll characterize it this way. it's important for viewers to get a chance to do comparison shopping seeing the two candidates face to face and i do think it has significance. it gives them a chance to make a choice. i'm a strong believer that debates are a very significant part of presidential campaigns. >> it's been interesting over the years. new england has a history of sort of verbal combat. we saw the massachusetts senate debate. new hampshire, folks in new england expect this kind of stuff. romney coming from massachusetts, do you expect this to be some heavy verbal combat between the two of them? >> i expect the tone to be a little bit less aggressive than people might be expecting, but i expect the content

? is that all you got? john sununu accused of president obama of waiting too long to -- in an interview with "the new york times." >> waiting two terms of w? >> stephanie: obama was timid. could have gone after him sooner and attributeded to secretary of state hillary clinton. what? as you recall, even a former defense secretary robert gates who served with bush described obama's decision to order the raid as gutsy saying people don't realize what a tough call it was. he and vice president biden both advised obama against the raid because they didn't have 100% surety he was there. so i don't know what you're talking about john sununu but nice try. [ applause ] >> he's the worst surrogate ever! >> stephanie: 29 minutes after the hour. it's still monday. even though it's not his usual time but it is time for rudeness. rude pundit joins us next on "the stephanie miller show." (vo) what is said here could decide the election. current tv presents coverage of the presidential debate. with unrivaled analysis and commentary. >> you'
: on the eve of the first presidential debate, what's going on today behind closes doors. governor john sununu, senior adviser to the romney campaign. >> i don't own stock in either fannie mae or freddie mac. mr. speaker i know that sounds like an enormous revelation. but have you checked your own investments? you also have investments in mutual funds that invest in fannie mae and freddie mac.

campaign, governor john sununu senior campaign visor, former white house chief of staff under president h.w. bush. governor, welcome. >> thank you. jon: you know we can't let any political event pass without taking a poll and one national outfit took a poll and asked viewers, do you think governor romney did better or worse than you expected. 82% said he did better. then expected. why do you think that is? >> well, because president obama in his dishonest way spent $250 million creating a caricature of somebody that doesn't exist. and second reason is, is that the mainstream media in playing clips of governor romney, over the past few months, have picked, in my opinion, the worst ones. what people saw last night was the real mitt romney, an individual that is truly compassionate, that really cares about people in america, understands they are hurting, under president obama, and demonstrated that he knows the issues from top to bottom. contrast that with a president that seemed, that not seemed, that was uninformed, detached, and demonstrated that he has been lazy and disengaged and has no
that is not enough. >> stephanie: oh, okay. because john sununu said he is lazy and stupid. romney walked back his own tax plan telling president obama and the american people he would not support a plan that cut taxes on the wealthy and raise taxes on the middle class -- that is mathematically impossible. as i read the actual -- like thing romney said, he basically just said huh-uh because i say so. >> wow. >> stephanie: he said so there's no economist that says the plan adds $5 trillion if i say it won't. [ applause ] >> stephanie: all right. wow. okay. so and as i was always saying i thought axelrod said it right. he said the strategy was effective in the short-term vulnerable in the long term. romney gave a good performance, the problem is none of it was rooted in fact. he told the debate medicare is -- mr. etch-a-sketch said that was wrong. the romney camp had to send someone in the spin room right after the debate to say, well he can't really do that. as for taxed obama appeared to be caught off guard by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney'

't stopped him from partying it up with beionsy and jay-z? >> i shot john sununu eye think the president's lazy and disengaged. i think all of that is true. i don't want to dampen enthusiasm here. but knowing this campaign and having observed them, if they are going to accuse governor romney of murder and they are going to accuse him of being a tax cheat and say he wants dirty air and water and wants to throw granny over the cliff, i want everybody to realize that it's coming. they are going to drop whatever they have to drop as a means of trying to hang on to the helicopter, the house and the plane. and so, you know, it was interesting. chris matthews says our knives are out. governor romney referred, they want to kill romney. this is not a joke. they want to bury him. so i would prepare everybody, or warn everybody, that they better be prepared here. the best advice came from chris matthews. ought to be watching us. calling conservatives nazis or rip dick cheney's heart out, stomp on it, or call laura ingraham a slut. which part of their narrative do they want to adopt from nbc news. >
. >> greta: and the hits keep coming and fast. former new hampshire governor john sununu ratchets it up, saying president obama is absolutely lazy and detached from his job. governor sununu joins us. nice to see you, governor. >> good to be here. how are you? >> greta: very well. very tough words. can you defend them? because that's very biting words. >> sure. look, one of the key responsibilities of a president is to keep up with the intelligence data that's coming in, what's going on around the world. this president has skipped about 60% of his personal contact presidential daily briefings, the pdb. that document he skims on his ipad is a summary. the briefings that come over, the experts that come over to follow in detail what's coming up on, this president thinks he's so smart he doesn't have to go through that. he thinks he doesn't need to put the extra work in for going through that process. that's why i say he's lazy and detached and unfortunately ambassador stevens suffered the consequences of us not providing adequate security there. >> greta: are you saying, though -- okay, yo
to make sure he doesn't look like he's lecturing. mitt romney will try to get punches off. john sununu said you'll see combativeness, but at the same time, you don't want mitt romney to appear too mean to the president. >> gretchen: the american people just want to hear as many answers as possible. so i do hope they have these time limits and that the candidates are forced to say what they mean and what they think in a short period of time. is it that tough? the american people have so many unanswered questions, especially the people who have not made up their mind about who they'll vote for. so if they're going to invest 90 minutes in watching this debate tonight, they want to hear a lot of answers. tomorrow night. so they want to be able -- we're talk being it so much, it feels like it's tonight. it's tomorrow night. they want to hear as many answers as possible. i hope the time limits will be in effect. >> brian: shear why president obama is in unchartered water. he hasn't debated in four years. instead of being the 40 something senator who has got two years in office with this grea
